't know is that the median income of lawyers in the united states is $62,000. they need to understand that before they incur $100,000 in debt. is there always room for another good lawyer? we need good lawyers. there always is. you have to ask yourself how much that you can afford -- how much debt you can afford. they have been watching too much "boston legal." you see $100,000 starting salaries. that may be for the top 10 students at the top 10 law schools. there were 30,000 graduates this year. what are the others going to do? there are jobs available and good jobs available, but we have to first let them know what to expect upon graduation. second thing we have to do is make sure we continue to have the profession look like our society. two spots of the examples. hispanic lawyers, less than 4%. 15% of our society. african americans come 8% come away under-represented. what we are doing in that regard as we have minority scholarships and a program where we put minority students with federal judges and state judges. we have a diversity center, which are the only four missions of the

concentrated and very sedentary. so about 10% of all the people in the united states own about 80% of the guns. they're mostly middle class, middle-aged people living in rural areas, and they hold on to their guns for a long time. on the other hand, most of the people engaged in crime are teens and young adults. one of the -- and most criminal careers are short. and so one of the things that that means is that there's always a new generation of young people who are troying to solve the problem -- who are trying to solve the problem fresh of getting their hands on guns. and i think one way that you could think about the challenger here or the situation here is you could think about the united states being just like a giant bathtub filled with 300 million guns. we don't need to worry about the entire tub, we just feed to worry about -- we just need to worry about the drain, trying to divert the guns away from the high-risk hands. the one other thing that i want to mention for the conversation right now is we have a bunch of stuff going on at the federal level, and we have a bunch of states tryin

of two things: one is a business environment in the united states that allows companies based here to compete successfully in the global economy but while maintaining or improving the standard of living of americans. we have to do those two things together to be truly competitive. if business is succeeding by cutting wages, that's a sign we're not competitive. so competitiveness is fundamental not only to companies and business but also really to the future prosperity of american citizens. >> susie: michael, people say that in order for the u.s. to be competitive it has to be a center for innovation. by that definition, how are we doing? >> well, i think the u.s. actually remains a tremendous juggernaut in terms of innovation. if you look at r&d speing in the entire world, we account for by far the largest share of r&d spending. we continue to be a major source of patenting and new companies. but the problem is not so much today innovation, the problem is that our business environment has got sufficiently inefficient and high cost and cumbersome that we're not able to capture the f
